ICYMI: Rubio and Hinson: Shore Up US Supply Chains
Shore up the U.S. food and industrial supply chain
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and U.S. Rep. Ashley Hinson (R-IA)
April 5, 2022
… According to the United Nations, the Ukrainian “food supply chain is falling apart” because of “insecurity and the reluctance of [truck] drivers.” The disruption of the global supply chain is already raising food prices. Tragically, it will be a source of “collateral hunger” for countless men, women, and children throughout the coming weeks, months, and possibly even years.

Revitalizing these sectors in the U.S. will prove essential to weathering future storms and making sure the 21st Century is another American Century….
Today, U.S. agriculture serves as an example of why resilience in critical industries is essential to sustaining our nation’s strength. Ignoring our vulnerabilities is no longer an option and failing to address them is a mistake we cannot afford to make.
